Zoes Kitchen

Zoes Kitchen recently opened a new location in the St Johns Town Center, and they invited me to come and check it out. The restaurant is located along Gate Parkway next to Sweet by Holly (in the old Qdoba spot). We ordered our food then spoke with the manager Hunter for a little bit. He mentioned that this location is one of their new design concepts. The front counter has a pass through where you can see the kitchen and they use open fire grills to cook their meat. The restaurant was nice and open, and even had an outdoor patio section. I also found out that they have a new app where you can scan your receipt to earn free food on your next visit! How cool is that?!
We weren't expecting it, but they brought out some Hummus for us to snack on while we were waiting on the food. I'm really glad they did because it was delicious!! I always judge places on their hummus, and Zoes passed with flying colors! It was super creamy and didn't have too much of a garlic taste like some have.

I ordered the Steak Roll-ups with rice pilaf for my entree (sliced tri-tip, swiss, sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, dipping sauce). The beef was thin and very tender, and I really liked how the tortilla was cooked. It was a little crispy while still being soft in the middle. I absolutely loved these roll-ups! Also, the rice is unbelievably good! It is just simple rice, but they make it taste amazing!

Ivan got the Gruben (grilled turkey, swiss, slaw, spicy mustard, rye). He really enjoyed it and said that the spicy mustard really made the sandwich great! He also agreed with me that the rice is some of the best he has ever had!

Verdict: Loved it!!
The food was great and the employees were very friendly and helpful. I am so happy to finally have a Zoes close to home. I love how they are a healthier alternative to fast food at a great price! I'm sure that we will be in there once a week for either lunch or dinner!
